Sen. De Lima Walk Out of the Senate Hearing After Alleged "Material Misrepresentation"


Sen. Leila De Lima walk out anew in the controversial Senate Hearing regarding the extra-judicial killling (EJK) after Sen. Richard Gordon, the Chairman of the Senate Committee on Justice says colleague Leila De Lima committed "Material Misrepresentation."


According to Sen. Gordon the only mistake of Sen. De Lima is that she committed an alleged "material concealment" for failing to disclose early that her state witness Edgar Matobato has a pending kidnapping case.

The incident happened at past the 12th hour of a Senate hearing on the alleged Davao Death Squad and the extra-judicial killing in the Philippines. Sen. Leila De Lima walked out of the Senate floor after being chastised by the committee chairperson for "material concealment."

Everything started when the new witness of the hearing, some Davao Police whom Matobato had earlier accused of being members of DDS - said that Matobato and several others were charged before the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) over the disappearance of Makdum.

During the hearing Sen. De Lima admitted that the information about Matobato's case at the NBI was part of "notes" gathered over a series of interviews with the controversial witness in September. She admitted the mistake, calling it an "oversight."
